POLL: Who Should Win Song of the Year at the 2014 CMA Awards?
The Song of the Year category for the 2014 CMA Awards is packed full of top-notch songwriters who wrote fan favorite songs, making this a very tough call indeed. From dancing to the beat of your own drum to cherishing a more simple life, the subject of each song gives listeners something to chew on but still enjoy sonically.
Miranda Lambert's 'Automatic,' written by Nicole Galyon, Natalie Hemby and Lambert, was the lead single from her fifth studio album 'Platinum,' and it resonated with many fans, urging them to slow down and live more simply. 'Follow Your Arrow,' sung by Kacey Musgraves and written by the songstress herself, plus songwriting geniuses Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally, is the most fun-loving song in the category and, although controversial, is a great reminder to stay true to yourself.
Eric Church's 'Give Me Back My Hometown' gave him his best-ever debut and shows a much different side of the singer than 'The Outsiders' did. It was written by Church and Luke Laird, a Grammy award-winning songwriter and producer who was nominated last year for Little Big Town's 'Pontoon.'
In 2013, Lee Brice nabbed the award for Song of the Year with 'I Drive Your Truck,' and it was a surprising showdown. This time around, 'I Don't Dance,' written by Brice, Rob Hatch and Dallas Davidson, is a contender for the prize, which could again go to the 35-year-old. Dierks Bentley rounds out the group with ‘I Hold On,’ which he co-wrote with Brett James. The track is about his wife, his guitar, his truck, the loss of his father and much more.
